The concept of combining
photovoltaic arrays with
standing seam metal roofing is
growing—and for good reasons. A
standing seam metal roof has a life
expectancy consistent with that of
framed PV modules. A 30-year power
source, on a 30-year roof, along with
zero-penetration technology creates
the most sustainable roof system
available coupled with alternative

with the expectancy of metal
roofs and attached accessories,
the S-5-PV Kit offers unmatched

makes it easy.
Attach almost anything to standing seam metal roofs
without piercing the panel!
Break an arm off and add a flange nut
for edge condition.
The S-5-PV Kits are furnished with the
hardware shown at right, excluding
the attachment clamp, which is supplied
separately. S-5-PV Kits are compatible with
most common metal roofing materials.
Providing flexibility, S-5! offers one kit to
accommodate all PV frame thicknesses from
1.3" (33 mm) to 2.5" (64 mm).
The embossed mounting disk makes the module
placement guide easier to use. Four strategically
placed under-disk hooks assist in wire management.
The PV grab ears that hold the solar panel in place are
broader to allow for ease of installation and precise
module engagement. The mounting disk is universally
directional and absolutely no rails are required.

Wind dynamics are complex, thus, each system should be
reviewed by a qualified licensed professional who understands
wind effects on metal roof design and construction prior
to purchase and installation. For more detailed information

holding strength, setscrews should be tensioned and re-tensioned as the seam
material compresses. Clamp setscrew tension should be verified using a calibrated
torque wrench between 160 and 180 inch pounds when used on 22ga steel and
between 130 and 150 inch pounds for all other metals and thinner gauges of steel. Consult
the S-5! website at www.S-5.com for published data regarding holding strength.
